Brothers and Sisters, I have made this plea before, but now there is an urgency which I was unaware of before. B&S, our orphans of the IDF are in great need of basic things, shoes, sports clothing and as always, because as we know, children grow like weeds, day to day clothing which they grow out of or wear out very quickly. I know many of you are sceptical of giving to online charities and I don’t blame you, but we here at the CJCN are doing our best to help the widows and orphans of the IDF, we are not trying to line our own pockets with your money. Many of us, including myself, are out of pocket due to the rising costs of running the the online church. All I am asking B&S is you donate one single Dollar, if everyone would do that, we would be able to cloth our orphans for a whole year and offer them a few extras too. In just under six weeks time, I shall return to Israel to begin the work of establishing the CJCN Bible Seminary, I would love to be able at that time, to hand over some some funds to our orphans, so far this year, we have received only $10. Can you help us with ONE SINGLE DOLLAR? Will YOU put a new pair of shoes on a five year old’s feet? Please, give whatever you can and please give now. With a good response to this fund raiser campaign, I pray you will be able to watch the video of me handing over your donations when I return from my trip. Please, help the CJCN to help the widows and Orphans of the IDF. The lord loves a cheerful giver.
Have you ever wondered what happens to a soldiers family when he is killed in combat???
Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood afternoon brethren, welcome to the CCN, ‘The Church of the Christian Nation’. Today I am announcing a fund raising project which I pray you will all feel part of and to which you will want to contribute whatever you can for our project. I have set a target of $5000 to be collected in donations, which once collected, will then be passed on to one of our worthy causes, this time, the IDF (Israeli Defence Force) Widows and Orphans fund. The target of $5000 on this occasion will help to pay for some of the most basic needs for children in early development and for widows, struggling with the mental trauma of losing a Husband and Father in defence of his people and his country, sometimes with very little support. All I need you to do is donate $1.00. That’s right, just one single Dollar to our fund and believe me, if everyone here at ‘The Nation’ gives one Dollar, two would be better, we will hit our target of $5000 in a single day. If you are a supporter of the Church, a supporter of Israel and of the Widows and Orphans of the IDF, then PLEASE, help us to make a difference to a few young lives in the Holy land of our lord Jesus. Please see my short sermon entitled The Cheerful Giver
6 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifullya]”>[a] will also reap bountifully. 7 Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
About the IDFWO.The IDFWO (Charity No. 580202166) Organization is a non-profit organization that was established in 1991 as the sole organization, recognized by the State of Israel, to represent the widows, widowers and orphans of Israel’s fallen soldiers.Today we work with over 8,000 men, women and children who lost their loved ones in the IDF and security forces making the ultimate sacrifice for the State of Israel. Although it is impossible to fill the void of a lost spouse or parent, IDFWO works tirelessly to be a helping hand of warmth and love, to provide that backbone of support that a parent or spouse generally provides to his family.We are not a faith based charity – we provide all our members emotional, financial and social welfare programs and aid throughout the calendar year and though every milestone of their lives.
We are a fully democratic organization. Every four years the 50 members of our general assembly, the seven members for the Board of Directors, and the Chairperson are elected – all of which are volunteer widows, widowers or adult orphans. We have branches located throughout the country in order to address the needs of members in their areas, and each branch has its own Board of Directors including a representative from the IDFWO head office.IDFWOCA is a sister non-profit organization registered in Canada (Charity No. 8549079) working directly with IDFWO on behalf of the widows & orphans of Israel’s fallen soldiers. IDFWO Canada is committed to providing grief support, financial aid and various welfare programs, with particular focus on religious life cycle events and social activities of IDF orphans.We can only run these life changing programs for our widows and orphans with your generous help. We promise that you can support us knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to benefit the widows and orphans programs.
Ori, Yotam, and Neta- Sharing Their Experiences at Otzma ‘Strength’ Camps.
Ori Greenberg, Son of Colonel Amotz Greenberg z”l
“My dad passed when I was 12 years old in Operation Protective Edge” Ori, whose father died while fighting in the operation to defend Israel by reestablishing security to Israeli civilians living through Hamas rocket fire and to destroy the Hamas tunnel system that was used to infiltrate Israel in 2014, tells us.
“About a month later (after the death), representatives from the IDFWO Organization came to my house and stared to explain how they were going to help us and that I can start coming to these Otzma (‘Strength’) camps.”
“I came to a place where I made friends for life that understand me and support me.”
Yotam Omer, Son of Reuven Omer z”l
“I was about 6 when he died” Yotam tells us of the loss of his father Reuven Omer.
“The friends I have made through the organization are not friendships, per say, they are much more than that. They are my family. I can speak more openly to my friends at Otzma (‘Strength’) Camps, I can smile and react to the things I feel because I know they feel the same pain and suffering that I do. With my friends from the IDFWO, I can talk about anything.”
“It’s very nice to people that understand what you have been and love you.”
“If this organization didn’t exist, I can’t imagine how much harder my life would be, because I feel that they have been a pivotal part of my healing process by firstly, boosting my confidence, and secondly, because I have met a lot of new friends.”
Neta Shaham, Daughter of Yakov Shaham z”l
“My father died when I was 6 years old.”
“Otzma (‘Strength’) camps are a place where people understand me and what I have been through because they have had a similar experience themselves.”
“I had my best friends and my family with me,” Neta says of the Bar and Bat Mitzvah Trip to North America. “I felt so loved and cared for after the Bar and Bat Mitzvah Trip to North America. I became so close to the families that hosted me.”
“They are so excited to be here,” said Howard and Melissa Dakoff, supporters of the IDFWO and a host family in Chicago, on the experience, “For us, to be able to help bring happiness to these children’s lives and see them and interact with them and have them become a part of our family, is such an amazing experience.”
“We are one heart,” Said Howard, “and it is important for these children to know and understand that they have family everywhere they go because we are all here for them”
Neta expresses, “The IDFWO Organization, and all of its supporters, have helped me face the feeling that something is always missing in my life and overcome the sadness I have felt since losing my father, and help me be happy again.”
